Is there a way to view past traffic on the traffic cameras in Wilmington?

Q. Is there a way to view past traffic on the traffic cams in Wilmington? I think I saw something a couple of days ago, but don’t want to report something that was nothing. I think to be able to view the past footage would remove any doubt.

A. The public does not have access to previously-recorded traffic cam footage.

City Traffic Engineer Donald Bennett said, “The traffic signal system is capable of recording up to nine of the thirty cameras that were installed with the signal system upgrade. This is used for evaluating traffic patterns; performing before and after traffic studies; recording special event traffic, or traffic patterns during times when staff is not at the Traffic Management Center.”

Bennett added, “If recorded, the video is stored for 30 days minimum. After 30 days, the video is overwritten with any new video.”
